High in potassium, this durable rich fertilizer plant with its deep roots can grow undaunted by drought or cold and yield a large amount of green goodness to  your compost pile or directly around plants. True comfrey can be reproduced from seed or root cuttings and provides a borage like flower loved by bees and hummingbirds. Few plants can match its staying power and long life. We grow all of these from seed so each one is genetically different making for a means to store seed for future plantings. The long tap carrot like root is grow 2 years in our long pots making them easy to transplant.
